All doctors are responsible for diagnosing patients as accurately as possible in order to provide timely and effective treatments. A patient whose condition has been incorrectly diagnosed risks being administered inappropriate medicines or undergoing unnecessary surgery. Victims of a medical misdiagnosis may not get the treatment they need for a serious condition. Victims who have been injured due to misdiagnosis can rely on a Scranton, Stroudsburg, and Wilkes-Barre area medical negligence lawyer and nursing staff from Foley Law Firm to provide aggressive, effective representation and help them secure maximum compensation for all damages.
When a medical caregiver negligently misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose a disease or condition, the treatment provided by that caregiver does not meet established health care standards. If you or a loved one has suffered because a medical caregiver failed to live up to his or her responsibilities, a medical negligence lawyer, registered nurse, and the only full-time board certified medical doctor in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania can help you secure full compensation.
Time is of the essence for cancer victims. Though many forms of cancer respond very well to treatment if diagnosed early, as time goes on the prospects for treatment can grow dimmer. Unfortunately, the symptoms of cancer are often misidentified and misdiagnosed. When this occurs, cancer may prove fatal.
Prostate, breast, cervix, and colon cancers are among those cancers that are frequently misdiagnosed or undiagnosed as a result of medical negligence. Every one of these cancers can be treated with great success if discovered early, but all of them can prove fatal if left unchecked due to medical negligence. For many cancer patients, a prompt diagnosis and appropriate, high-quality care can mean the difference between life and death. A late diagnosis does not always prove fatal for the patient, but at the very least it means longer treatment and a harder battle ahead.
